"Something New" For Our Front Door

Our front door has been is dire need for something new to hang on it. Today, I made that "something new", a flower basket/bag using scraps of vintage tablecloths to hang and hold fresh flowers.
I also added a plastic rectangle container which fits perfectly inside the bag to hold water. It's already filled with flowers since we have many rhododendron's blooming right now.
Ahhh... I love this time of year!!!

I love the hanging 'basket' with the rhodo's. They have beautiful colors! My very light pink/whitish one is blossoming now too. I love this time of the year most!

That's a dandy idea! That's much more creative than a wreath!

I am in love with that bag! I adore vintage tableclothes, and the bag looks great on your door. It would look wonderful on my door too...hint hint.
